Things To Do: Animation Festival, Comedy Zen, Afordable Art Sale, Scavenger Hunt


 Coming rigth after the CTN Expo of animation we have the animation festival. I must recommend Fantastic Planet for it's bizarre nature. It's really weird.

12/5 @ 8:30pm / Series: The 2nd Los Angeles Animation Festival International
LAAF Awards Show

Fantastic Planet
(w/ live score by Jesus Makes The Shotgun Sound!)
On your marks -- get set -- GO! on the high octane, white-knuckle ride that is Redline, the most talked about anime of the year! Seven years in the making, the feature debut by director Takeshi Koike (of "Animatrix" fame) is a singular, assaulting stylistic triumph that leaves the state of stale, big-eyed cookie-cutter anime in the dust.
Dec 8th, 12:15am & Dec 5th, 6:30pm - $10
One of the must-see gems making its premiere at our festival, Midori-Ko is adored Japanese animator Keita Kurosaka's whimsically nightmarish vision of 21st-century Tokyo on the brink of apocalypse. Emerging from the staggering detail and craft flooding every frame is the story of a young woman who sets out to engineer a dream-food that can put an end to the world's famine.
Dec 5th, 4:30pm - $10

If you wanna see claymation at it's creepiest check out The Adventures of Mark Twain this year, too. It involves suicide, meeting Satan, and randomly picking up children. It's really quite messed up.

L.A. Scavenger Hunt

Fill like a scavenger Hunt this Saturday? Then head to Dodger Staduim and put ten bucks down>

Anyone notice the Rampage homage above, I loved that game. It's funny to see it in a ad for a scavenger hunt in LA.
